Eyelid Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
Is It Uncomfortable to Have Upper Eyelid Surgery with Just Local Pain Medication?
I will be taking one hydrocodone/apap 7.5/500mg tablet and one diazepam 10 mg 1/2 hour prior to the surgery and given a local numbing injection. Do you know from your experience if this a comfortable option compared to general sedation? Plus have you performed this surgery without the protective eye lens cover?
